Unfortunatley I have not been here in summer, but the park looks very nice and I am sure it is an amazing park to chill out in the summer. There is a lot of water, places to barbecue, they even have bars and something that looks like a cinema. Above all it is in the middle of the city, perfect!!

Just a short walk from our hotel, it was fun to sit on the grass and enjoy the warm sunshine on a beautiful clear day. It was a Sunday afternoon and all the locals were soaking up the sun, grilling and playing games with their children. Reminds one of Central Park in New York City, but much smaller.

It is just beautiful to stroll around and the bird life is amazing to watch. Great place to get out of the city centre.

Not a huge park but lovely to cycle around. On a warm day it would be lovely to see by the lake and enjoy the water fountains that can be found around the park. We enjoyed a coffee in the park cafe and were able to lounge in the sunshine on the oversized bean bags. A pleasant way to idle... More

It's under construction, but it's beautiful. The nature catches you, there are not so many people around, there are benches you can rest.

Vondelpark is easily accessible by foot, canal, tram and bus. It is beside the Museum Quarter and provides a welcome change of pace to the rest of the city. It is a great place to people watch, grab a snack or a drink, and let an hour or two drift by. We saw herons, baby coots and ducks on the... More

A beautiful park with lots of open space and water! It is a very popular location so is not 'quiet' - in fact, there are many, many joggers, cyclists, skateboarders etc! - but there are wide paths and it is a large area. There are a couple of cafes/restaurants - we visited one for a coffee which had a large... More
